Happy 90th Birthday, Mickey Mouse!!!
This is hands down my favorite picture ever taken of Mickey Mouse. H was so excited and a little bit nervous to meet Mickey, but he ran right up to him and gave him a big hug. The two of them sat together in this hug for several minutes and it was so special. At one point, Mickey even tried to shoo us away, seeming to tell us that he’d just hang out with H the rest of the day.
This picture captures Mickey perfectly, to me. He is happy. He is accepting. He is loving. He is friendly. He is kind. He is there and makes you feel comfy and content. Call me silly, but Mickey Mouse is home. I am so grateful for this happy guy who I’ve known since birth. He’s been there with me in my life every step of the way and I am very pleased to know he’ll be there for all of my future steps as well. There is no one else like Mickey Mouse and there never will be.
Happy Birthday, pal. You’ve aged tremendously. You deserve all the magic, just like you’ve given the world.
